Before & After Pics
Rotator Cuff Tear and Repair
This picture shows the before and after of a rotator cuff repair. This outpatient procedure is done arthroscopically, usually taking 30-40 minutes. If you are in need of a rotator cuff surgery, make an appointment with Dr. Thomas Kovack to see if you are a candidate for this repair procedure. Dr. Kovack is able to repair up to the largest or massive tears arthroscopically.
Shoulder arthritis and Arthroscopic Biologic Total Shoulder Resurfacing (ABTSR)
This new, minimally invasive procedure is starting to be performed in place of a conventional total shoulder replacement for younger patients with severe glenohumeral arthritis. This procedure offers many advantages, including a faster recovery time, that it is performed as an outpatient surgery, that it is arthroscopic, and that it uses biologic donor bone and cartilage. This arthroscopic shoulder repair procedure is ideal for patients who need a total shoulder replacement but are too young for the conventional shoulder replacement with metal and plastic.
Shoulder Arthritis and Total Shoulder Arthroplasty
This procedure is performed on older patients with severe glenohumeral arthritis. Patients typically experience pain and limited function, but they must have a functioning rotator cuff. Most patients report excellent results with this procedure. Make your appointment with Dr. Kovack today!
Shoulder Arthritis With Chronic Rotator Cuff Tears treated with Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty
This procedure is typically performed on a patient with shoulder arthritis and a chronic rotator cuff tear who is experiencing pain and limited function with activities such as lifting the hand to the mouth and have problems with normal daily activities. A conventional total shoulder replacement cannot be performed on these patients because they do not have functioning rotator cuffs. A reverse total shoulder replacement works very well on these patients. Make your appointment today if you are interested in learning more!
